Just tried adding a Bing Map to a site plan following this blog https://communities.bentley.com/products/microstation/b/microstation_blog/posts/like-v8i-you-ll-love-connect---make-using-bing-maps-a-snap-by-using-microstation-connect-edition
The aerial view drops in OK but the quality is rubbish. How do I get a better/sharper display of the map. @Shawn McGaffick

To add to Shawn's comments perhaps this article will help elaborate the limitations of Bing maps in terms of image resolution and scale.
Can "you" (Shawn and/or David) provide some guidance on getting the Bing Map options to work. They have NOT worked for me since Update 4, and my posts in regards to this issue seems to go unanswered for the most part. I am unable to use either a Background Map or attach an image thru Raster Manager. When I open a file that has a Bing Map already attached (from the Update 4 days), I see:
www.bing.com/.../Aerial (Password required)
and when I look in Raster Manager, and right-click on the raster, I see "Enter Credentials" in the pop-up, but nothing opens when I select it (not sure what I'd have to enter anyway).
Yes - I AM signed into CONNECTION Client.
I suspect it's something to do with our firewalls, so it would be nice to see a document that specifies the requirements for getting this to work.
Bentley's OpenFlows (water) products have Bing Maps capabilities as well, and I believe dev.virtualearth.net needs to be opened up in your firewall.
